Alma “Sips Of Oxygen” – Breathe, breathe in the air

New York City’s ALMA stitch together recorded soundscapes, quirky electronica and a tight vocal harmonising that has earned them comparisons to The Staves.  ‘Sips of Oxygen’ moves stealthily from a 4th of July party to a hospital room with the wheezing sounds of an oxygen ventilator, and asks that simple question that occurs to thousands every day: “how in the hell did it come down to sips of oxygen?”  The song is taken from ALMA’s debut album ‘Mosaic‘, which will be released on October 7th

ALMA is comprised of Alba S. Torremocha (vocals, strings, bass, drums, guitar, uke) Lillie R. McDonough (vocals, piano, glock, violin, hammer dulcimer), and Melissa K. Carter (vocals, guitar). The trio formed in 2019 out of a shared delight in harmonizing and experimentation with quirky instrumentals and old-fangled synthesizers.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
